8:00am
i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me today. cnn news room continues right now with christine romans you have to get that done as well. jackie, tell me why somebody should bring they're car here to the ford dealership for service instead of any one of those other places out there. they are going to take care of my car because this is where it came from. price is right no problem, they make you feel like you're a family. get a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and much more, $29.95 after $10.00 rebate. if you take care of your car your car will take care of you.
8:01am
8:02am
. hello, everybody. i'm christine romans in for ashleigh banfield. the blade runner walks for now. a bombshell ruling in an announcement from pretoria. she swirms and tries to stick to her story. jodi arias. two days away from historic daytona 500 danica patrick is on a roll. oscar pistorius is getting out on bail. the blade runner will walk out of a courthouse today after days of uncertainty. his bond has been set the 1 million rand. about $100,000. he can't return to his house and must report every monday and
8:03am
friday to a police station. he must avoid witnesses, surrender his passport and can't go near an airport. the magistrate took two hours to explain his position and why he doesn't consider pistorius a flight risk. >> it may not necessarily be the case that he is now committed to face 15 years imprisonment or life imprisonment. i cannot find that the accused -- i cannot find that it has been established that the accused is a flight risk or that that ground has been established that is needed to be established. >> robyn curnow is live from pretoria, south africa. tell us what happened in that courtroom today. are people happy with this bail decision? >> reporter: the one person who is happy who walked past us just a few minutes ago was his
8:04am
lawyer, barry roux. nic robertson asked him are you pleased? he said yes, i am pleased. there was a strange bail proposal. he is not allowed to drink alcohol. he put it to oscar pistorius's lawyer, what about that bail condition that he's not allowed to drink alcohol. he said that's fine. oscar doesn't drink. i'm hearing in my ear that you are bringing up pictures that we showed you just a short moment ago. these are the pictures of oscar pistorius leaving the magistrate's court here in a silver land rover. the windows are tinted. you can probably see our cameraman trying to get a shot. we get a few brief seconds. oscar is in the back seat swashed in the middle. his uncle with him as he makes his way out of the pretoria traffic jam where we are. he is released from bail. he's not allowed to go to the
8:05am
house where the crime took place. he has a few other houses but a get a sense from his family from speaking to them in court they're going to protect him. they aren't going to leave him alone. people are worried about his emotional state. unclear where he went in that land rover but no doubt somewhere where he is going to be safe and protected from his family. many people also today when you talk about reaction, don't forget reeva steenkamp. i think this country is very much dividing along the lines of for oscar and against oscar. many of these people behind me have been saying that this is a traf city of justice. he admitted to shooting her and he should stay in jail. this is going to be a hot topic of conversation and debate in south africa. >> when you look at those pictures of him leaving, very grim faced men and women in that car, far different from the first pictures we had of him when he was being arrested where he was hiding his face.
8:06am
this is just the beginning, right, just the bail part of this. when does the trial start? >> reporter: it's the beginning of a long ordeal for oscar's family and reeva's family. the earliest, the soonest we are going to see a trial could be at least another two years until there's any sense of his fate. you talk about looking drawn. just talking to my cnn producer, diane mccarthy who was in court today. we were outside doing lives all day. she was describing he looks gaunt, withdrawn, isolated. many of the journalists and observers in court and i noticed yesterday when i was in court, he looks aged. his hair seems to be going grayer and he lost weight. we know he hasn't been eating a lot. this is a man coming to terms and the consequences of what he did on valentine's day morning.
8:07am
>> thank you so much. cnn tonight conflicting evidence, tearful admissions, shocking twists. this murder case has sparked worldwide intrigue and debate. whose story do you believe? watch ac 360, blade runner, murder or mistake. a dispratt search is under way for the person or persons responsible for a shooting and a fiery six vehicle wreck yesterday on the las vegas strip. two people died inside this fire ball. one was 62-year-old cab driver michael bolden, his passenger also dead. the taxi burst into flames when it was struck by a maserati apparently fleeing from a range rover which set off a violent reaction. here's what police think happened. >> what we believe at this time is the incident began as an altercation in the area of the aria hotel. according to witness statements, shots were fired from the range
8:08am
rover at the maserati. >> the maserati driver was killed. he has been identified as rapper kenneth cherry also known as kenny clutch. a passenger in his car was hurt. mike blas ski is a crime reporter with the las vegas review journal. what led up to this violent altercation. fill us in. >> reporter: thanks for me me. we don't know exactly why this started but we know where it started. it started in the val lay parking lot of the aria hotel which is right there in the center of the action. then it continued on the streets of the las vegas strip. both cars traveled north about a block where they crashed into the -- excuse me, the maserati crashed into the cab. what we're hearing now is that this las vegas rapper, kenny clutch, he also went by his real name kenny cherry, may have been
8:09am
involved in a despite with another rival that morning, possibly stemming from some dispute earlier the previous evening. >> how well known was kenny cherry in las vegas? >> reporter: not really that well known, especially not for his rapping. if you look at his youtube videos, they only have a few thousand views and they don't appear very expensive. i don't think that was how he was making his money. the rumors andal gagsz are that he was making money as a pim p. that might have been at least the reason for what happened that morning. >> have police spoken with the maserati passenger? >> reporter: they have. they haven't released anything that the passenger may have told them. they're keeping everything very sensitive to the investigation private as they look for this range rover. that's been the primary focus of
8:10am
the las vegas metropolitan police department this last 24 hours or so. they've wanted to get out the description of the car and put that as far as they can go. i know all the authorities in the neighboring states have been alerted and they are looking out for this range rover with the black rims and dealer plates. >> it just almost disappeared after this. a surveillance camera caught it for a moment after the crash and then it was gone. from the las vegas review journal, thank you. the huge snowstorm that buried the midwest is now headed toward new england. bus service suspended in downtown kansas city yesterday because of scenes just like that one. the city got more than a foot of snow. governs of both kansas and missouri declaring states of emergency. airports slowly getting back to normal today. this flight from denver got bogged down after landing in
8:11am
wichita, getting unstuck took a while but the passengers took it in stride. >> everybody was in really good spirits. we all chatted and had a good time. it got a little long, but for the most part everybody stayed in good spirits. >> by far the most entertaining delay i have ever had in my life. this is laughable to me. >> for the latest on where the weather storm is now. karen mcguinness joins us from the cnn weather center in atlanta. you see a baby stuck in an airport and you got to admire the smiles on face. >> just when you think spring is coming you get one of those winter storms. it is not the system but a lesser system than we were looking at 24 hours ago. look at these snowfall totals. i did see isolated amounts of 20 inches, 18 inches and 14 inches in wichita. here's that low area of pressure
8:12am
that we're watching making its way into the great lakes region, chicago, 3 or 4 inches of snowfall. this is going to continue to move into canada. we'll catch a secondary low pressure area develop off the carolinas but secondary rain all the way towards daytona. i hate to tell you. let's look at who enjoyed the snow the most. take a look at this bull dog. this is an ireporter coming out of missouri. the dog is crazy going down the hill. the owner, karen, says the dog is just absolutely obsessed with snowboarding. one person had some fun. we'll continue to update you on the storm system throughout the afternoon. >> again, that snow is headed our way in the northeast. thanks. the man hunt was set fof by his mentor.

8:18am
during cross-examination. they asked her how she can remember so many details about her ex-boyfriend and so little about when he was killed. >> when did you decide to tell the truth when you are in this court is is that what i'm hearing from you? >> no. just because you're in this court doesn't mean you have to tell the truth. is that what you are telling us? >> that's not what i'm telling anyone. >> what factors influence your memory problem? >> usually when men like you r screaming at me like you and travis. it makes my brain scramble. >> let's bring in tv judge author and former providing judge glenda hatchet and cnn legal contributor paul callan. he's really going after those apparent memory lapses. what do you make of her. >> i'll tell you it seems awfully convenient.
8:19am
i have presided over so many trials where there are so many details and all of a sudden the prosecutor gets up for cross-examination and they can't remember anything. i do understand that there are traumatic things that may cause someone to lose their memory. but her whole demeanor is different now. i will tell you i think the prosecutor is going to have a field day with her on cross-examination. i think credibility is a major point and i think the jury is going to start wondering is she telling the truth. >> what do you think about her demeanor and how it has shifted, paul? >> i think it shifted in a major way. i think back to when i was prosecutor murder cases. a lot of prosecutors when they go into a case like this, they have very little to work with, no testimony on the record or anything. he's got days and days of her testimony on the stand, her demeanor now radically shifting to someone who is tough and she's fighting back with him. >> he's pushing her. >> he's pushing her buttons because he wants to show this jury that she has a cold, hard,
8:20am
calculating side that was capable of planning this murder and how convenient. you don't remember 27 stab wounds to this person that you killed? so i think he's doing a very, very good job on cross-examination. >> you talked, judge hatchet, about her credibility. he went after her about her claim that alexander broke her finger during an argument. listen to this exchange. >> put up your left hand. according to you, he kicked you and damaged your ring finger on the left hand, correct? >> yes. >> in fact, you even held it up for us, didn't you? >> yes. >> and it was crooked when you showed it to us, wasn't it? >> it's bent. >> it's bent. show us how bent it is again, ma'am. higher so we can see it sideways. ma'am, if we caused that damage on january 22nd of 2008, that would have been before this picture that we have here which
8:21am
is exhibit numberer 453, five months before that. >> he's really attacking her credibility. >> he's. that's really the risk the defense p council has taken on this case. she was on the stand day after day with intricate details that i think would be hard for somebody to recall. the prosecutor has so much to work with on cross-examination. that's why the prosecution kind of took the laid back approach and not many objections as people criticized him for. i think that was part of the strategy because now she has opened the door to so much and credibility is really goes to be an issue here. >> it's interesting how juries think. sometimes you just don't predict how a jury is going to think. paul, he's really pushing her, pushing her buttons as you said. is there a risk that he comes
8:22am
off bullying to her and that might be sympathetic to the jury? >> yes. one of the things the prosecutor has to reign himself in on in a case like this, he has so much to work with he could probably pound her for another five days and if he did that it may shift in her favor. the idea is to get in, go after her and do the knockout punch, the knockout blow in a shorter period of time. >> i think it's wise to keep it sus sing. >> reminder you can watch the jodi arias trial which resumes monday on our sister network hln, trutv or cnn.com. this weekend danica patrick is in the spotlight for speed. she won the pole but can danica win the daytona 500? meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee.

. it's the biggest battle of the sexes since bobby rigs and billy jean king. danica patrick taking on men in nascar in the daytona 500 on sunday. she's already made history becoming the first woman to win the kof eted pole position. there's a lot ahead. >> patrick struggled in this
8:26am
spotlight last year, her first after seven seasons with indy car. just two laps, she crashed and finished 38. now after making history to be the first woman to make pole position it's clear her years of trying to make it to the front row are paying off. >> i think if you are happy in your personal life, everything shows. you can do your job well. >> i have a lot to learn, too. i understand that. i've's got jeff gordon starting next to me. i've got a herd of them behind me. hopefully at the end of 500 we're rolling and we have a chance. >> joe carter joins me from daytona. is the great american race danica's to lose? >> reporter: i can tell you that her team as well as danica patrick feel like they're off to a great start and they couldn't have scripted a better start to win the pole on sunday and
8:27am
preserve the -- excuse the noise. we are in the middle of a late morning practice session. for her team to now start sunday in the front row they couldn't have scripted a better start. keep in mind, too, that danica patrick is a rookie. this is her first season at nascar's highest level. she raced ten races at this level last year, her best 17th. she has a tremendous amount of experience obviously and with all the attention she's gotten last week of course there's the pressure that follows and then you add on top of that 42 other drivers that look across here car and value her as a legitimate threat. >> how are all the other drivers reacting to all the attention on danica patrick. she's really taking a lot of the spotlight. >> reporter: she's. we call it the danica effect. like what tiger woods did for
8:28am
books. obviously more people catch nascar, attend the track, more people are interested in the sport all together. danica has an effect not only inside the track but also outside the track and so the drivers, they are feeling at least the people that we've talked to say whatever is good for nascar is good for the sport is good for us. we'll take the positive feedback and take more fans and if there's any indication of how popular danica has become, earlier in the week jeff gordon, his little five-year-old daughter ella wanted to take a picture with danica patrick because she won the pole and she didn't know that danica could race with guys. she said i didn't even know that girls could race with boys. she's opened up a whole new fan base. >> that's cool. joe carter on a very difficult assignment clearly. thanks, joe. oscar pistorius, the blade runner released on bail with
8:29am
strict guidelines. our legal experts discuss the pros and cons next. this is so sick!

8:32am
the cop accused of murdering his third ex-wife will loilg spend the rest of his life in prison. savio's death was ruled an accident and she is still missing. attorneys for george zimmerman accused of killing the 17-year-old want to question the martin family's attorney. they say ben crumb p has withheld information about an interview with did with the girlfriend when he was shot. oscar pistorius walked out of a south africa jail today after the magistrate granted him jail. >> the way that he did, placing it before the court, together with the fact that none of the factors that need to be established have been establish established, i come to the conclusion that the accused has
8:33am
made a case to be released on bail. >> pistorius's troubles are far from over. his next court date is june 4 and his trial may not start until the end of the year. cnn legal krpter paul callan and georgia juvenile court glenda hatchet join me. paul, you say it is in line with american standards and standards around the world? >> here in new york city you get a trial in a murder case in less than a year and in some cases longer than that. i don't think you can criticize the south africans for how long it's going to take. >> the magistrate had very harsh words. how does that effect south africa's police system. >> i listened to this hearing that went on for almost two hours and took all these
8:34am
detailed notes and he was very critical of the investigators as well as some things around the prosecution. i think that it had a big impact on his decision today, but i also think the commissioner, the police commissioner, i saw part of her interview yesterday, has a big are issue now because they've got to go back and shore up this. they've got to make sure that they have dealt with some of these concerns before trial. >> paul, were you surprised he was granted bail? people seem divided. early on it looked like the prosecution had a strong case and it looked like they would keep him in and then it unravelled. >> it looked like a strong case. i thought clearly there would be no bail when it started but by the end i new the judge would be troubled by this. one of the things i discovered did dez mond nair, he had a case about a famous rugby player who beat a cop to death. in a shocking decision he found
8:35am
him guilty of culpable homicide and gave him a suspended sentence. nair is not afraid to go against the police. in the end here with all this police bum blg, i think that prior case comes to roost. he mentioned by the way the word culpable homicide giving a hint to what the future may be in this case. >> judge, what's next in terms of the investigation here? >> they have a lot of work to do. this is certainly not a clear-cut case in this case. to paul's point about homicide, the charge of homicide, there may be some hint that they will come up and say that that's self-defense because that's comparable to our self-defense here in the states. >> self-defense from what? >> he was arguing that there was an intruder and he had to shoot in the bathroom for fear of himself and others. >> in south africa can you just go and start shooting through a
8:36am
door even if you think an intruder is there? >> this is sort of stand your ground on steroids. >> yes, it is. >> he have's heard from south african reporters that we have to understand the context of south africa. people live in fear in south frick, particularly wealthy people that somebody is going to come through the window and kidnap them and take their money. so there's a thought that shooting into a room is justifiable. i think it's a tough sell and reckless homicide. that's what he's facing. >> we have a long way to go before there's resolution in this. stick with me. as a homeless man sues his parents, he wants them to take out a second mortgage to buy a pizza franchise so he can get a job. it's marching to the beat of a different drum. and where beauty meets brains. it's big ideas with smaller footprints.

welcome back. you may have heard that birth control pills are 99.something something percent effective and when taken as directed they are. taken as directed means certain pills on certain days and they are packaged to make that as foolproof as possible. what if they're mispack aged, packaged out of order. while we don't know how many pregnanci pregnancies, the lawsuits are piling up. california, texas, missouri, tennessee and georgia this happened. i asked my lawyers. wrongful death is one thing. can you sue for wrongful birth?
8:45am
>> it's interesting. i see this as a products liability case and there have been cases in most states that allow what we term wrongful pregnancies. usually they are from vas ekt mis or tubal ligations that have gone wrong but a few involving continue sense. it is possible under these circumstances to sue. what they will be able to recover is a very different conversation in terms of damages. >> a woman in kansas city wants medical expenses, emotional distress and the cost of raising a child which we know is expensive. is it likely she'll get complication for the cost of rearing a child? >> i think a lot of women will be sympathetic to her plight. >> she can still love this child. it's just not what you planned. >> not only can you love the
8:46am
child but when a jury looks at damages, suppose this kid turns out to be ail bert i know stein or a famous movie star and supports the mother for the rest of her life. where are the damages? maybe it's the best thing to happen to her. the states are reluctant to allow lawsuits for wrongful life and wrongful birth to go forward. usually the cost of the pregnancy but not saying it's bad to have a kid. >> that's what's called a blessing doctor rin where a baby, a healthy baby is a good thing. it can make life better. you point out how this child maybe will support you in your old age. this companies did issue recalls and the pills are color coded. do the users bear responsibility? >> i have been thinking about that but if you have been in the habit of taking these pills and you just kind of take them, i don't know that they bear the responsibility. actually, there was a woman and a pharmacist who actually as i understand it alerted them to the problem. i guess there are people who
